Asking for Prayer

Tonight when we are sleeping, the Ethiopia court will be deciding the fate of our little Nathaniel. I haven't been sleeping well all week thinking about this day coming. I am excited and scared, and nervous and scared, and hopeful, and scared...did I mention I was scared?! Scared of the unknown and scared of being a mom all at the same time. I am sure there are many who have felt this way...

Paul made the official announcement from the pulpit this morning and we showed the church pictures. It was exciting and scary (there's that word again!), as we have now invited our church on the emotional roller coaster with us (again, see post on October 7th). We know the risks, but really wanted to have our church interceeding on Nathaniel's and our behalf.

Can I ask you a favor? Will you please remember to pray before you go to bed tonight? We are not sure exactly what time the court date it, but we do know that Ethiopia is 10 hours ahead of us in Oregon. This means that when it is 10PM our time, it will be 8AM in Ethiopia.

If all goes well (please, Lord!) we will be updating and posting pictures in the morning.

Love you all,
